I just saw a thread on iPod questions and it reminded that in the last few weeks, I've seen loads of complaints about iPods in Britain. So I know that in the US, Apple have been taken to court over batteries running out - but apparently they have said this doesn't apply to other countries!! There was a consumer programme on BBC TV where they had loads of people complaining that their battery started to run out more and more quickly - so there were several interviews with people saying after having it for a few months, they would get on the tube and it would stop working after playing 2 songs!! All the customer service had said was that they could buy a new battery for about £50 ($80-90) - but if you have to do this every few months, it's pretty inconvenient and expensive!! I have also seen stories in the newspapers about how iPod Nanos are too fragile and people are saying they broke after a few days!! Seems like these things are more trouble than they're worth!!
